Schlüter®-DILEX-AKWS | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



  1. Select Schlüter®-DILEX-AKWS according to tile thickness. 
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply tile adhesive to the area where the profile will be placed. 
  3. Press the perforated anchoring legs of Schlüter®-DILEX-AKWS into the adhesive bed and align. The profile must align directly with expansion and movement joints in the substrate below. 
  4. Completely cover the perforated anchoring leg with tile adhesive. Apply tile adhesive to the vertical section of the profile leg at an angle. 
  5. Firmly press the adjoining tiles into place and adjust them in such a way that the upper lip of the profile is flush with the tile. Note: The profile should not be higher than the tile, but rather flush or up to approx. 1 mm lower. Always set the uncut section of a tile against the profile and ensure solid coverage at the profile area. 
  6. The tile is set to the side of the profile, which assures a uniform joint space of 1.5 mm. 
  7. Fill the joint between the profile and the tile completely with grout.
